My platform is untunt11.04, there are some differences for the default installed packages and the permission of device resources.
My original intention is just writing down what problems I met and how I fixed them by tricky ways. I remembered, I listed the wiki page at first.
Again, I will figure out the differences and adding them here. :)

For the documentation in general, maybe we can use doxgen to generate some formal api introduction for some " WL_EXPORT " APIs.
But we need to follow some doxgen defined coding style and add more and add more explanation before the " WL_EXPORT " APIs.

And, the TODO list is really very helpful for the next step.
